Do All Cobalts Ride Rough?

Hey i just got a 2007 Cobalt SS a couple months ago and have noticed that when i go over bumps and potholes the car really doesnt have that great of suspension. It doesnt bother me much but i was just wondering if all the cobalts were like this or if there is something wrong with mine? And how can i fix this??

You own a Cobalt SS with the Sport suspension. It happens. The shocks, struts, and springs are all stiff.


It's a cobalt

EDIT: The only way to "fix" it is if you would upgrade your shocks to Konis...or to T/C shocks....but you gonna get the same type of ride

Yeah the ride is going to be a little rougher because of the suspension in the ss cobalts the springs are stiffer for better handling. If you would upgrade to coilovers it would be a little better, but for the added benefits of handling, the ride is worth it. I have a talon and Megan racing shocks and struts, lowered, yeah ride is a lot worse then the cobalt.
